I find Christmas decorations take up so much room. I confess that in my last house we had over 8 boxes of decorations and they weren’t small boxes! When I left my husband (oh the shame!) I started again and this time I was determined to cut down the quantity. Well, a few years down the line and I have loads. So today I sorted through them and decided to organise them. Read to the end to see my method for sorting and organising them. If you’ve been following the 30 Day Challenge – Embracing the Declutter Mindset then you will see that on Day 1 I tackled the Christmas decorations.
Meanwhile, here are some ideas that I found on the internet that you could also try.
Christmas Bauble Storage – Homemade
I’m sure we’ve all opened the decorations box at Christmas and found a broken bauble or two. Over at makelifelovely.com there is a great post suggesting using egg cartons and fruit storage containers to store them.
Christmas Bauble Storage – Shop Bought
I also found some storage items on amazon. (Honesty: These are affiliate links. If you click through I may get a few pennies but the item costs you no more.)
I have tried to find one for the Christmas tree but no luck. If you find one, please comment below.
I have managed to get the tree back in the cardboard box it came in this year which amazes me. I’m guessing that next year it won’t be so easy so I have been looking for a bag to put it in. It needs to be a strong one as I have an 8 foot tree. I’ve seen one in Argos but it was out of stock so I found this one on Amazon which I may order.
Christmas Card Upcycling
You could just recycle your cards but I’m very much into crafts so I went hunting for ideas for upcycling them. I’m putting together a pinterest board with ideas so if you’d like to follow that then please click here.
I will continue to update this post as the day goes on and the ideas keep flowing.
